largely b.s. >> if we kick the can down the road or do something that is not real, it will not fool you. it will not fool the american people or the markets. whatever we do, we have a lame duck, it is a framework deal, it has to be real, has to have real clarity, substance, a real down payment, both revenue and entitlement cuts, it has to have a timeline. it does not get easier. it gets harder. you are going to have to have a fail-safe provision. it is not like the one was had with the sequester. something that is acceptable. i think you will have to solve this debt ceiling issue as part of this deal.
